I can't speak, as I've never used those.
But can't those directories be renamed to Lib/plat-<platform.system()>?

As for the performance overhead, since the platform module caches the result of uname or other function/subprocess calls, I don't think it's a showstopper. Furthermore, I somehow doubt those functions are performance bottlenecks anyway.

Since Linux 3 is in RC now, is there a chance to reach a consensus in the near future?
